HEADWAY APPROACH TO INTERSECTION CAPACITY

THE CAPACITY OF AN APPROACH TO A SIGNALIZED INTERSECTION IS A FUNCTION OF APPROACH HEADWAYS OF VEHICLES AS THE QUEUE OF WAITING VEHICLES IS DISCHARGED INTO THE INTERSECTION AND OF LOST TIME DUE TO STARTING DELAY AND TO UTILIZATION OF ONLY PART OF THE YELLOW LIGHT INTERVAL. THIS PAPER SUGGESTS A METHOD FOR COMPUTING CAPACITY OF SIGNALIZED INTERSECTIONS FROM MEASUREMENTS OF HEADWAYS, STARTING DELAYS, AND UTILIZATION OF THE YELLOW LIGHT AND PRESENTS SOME PRELIMINARY DATA ON ITS APPLICATION.
